self portrait: tuesday

not that i think this a particularly good portrait. but i took it yesterday on a really nice labor day hike near white oak canyon, in the shenandoah national park. the earrings i am wearing were given to me by a college friend many years ago. i decided to wear them yesterday, and today, for the first time in at least 15 years, i heard from the friend who gave them to me!

it was a lovely hike, though, due to a late start, we didn't get as far as any of the waterfalls. but the trees spoke to us, and the big rocks mumbled. the flowers nodded at us, and the fungus babbled. and at the very end of our hike, a friendly doe approached us, and then followed us down the trail for a while. tashi snapped lots of photos with the small digital camera (yet to be uploaded) and tristan was blissed out the entire time. it was a great dose of chlorophyll for all.

here are some not self portraits from our day:
